Original Article

White House hopeful Pete Buttigieg raised doubts about President Trump’s belief in God during an interview published Wednesday. The South Bend, Indiana, mayor discussed Mr. Trump’s faith during a recent conversation with USA Today. “I’m reluctant to comment on another person’s faith, but I would say it is hard to look at this president’s actions and believe that they’re the actions of somebody who believes in God,” Mr. Buttigieg told the newspaper. “I just don’t understand how you can be as worshipful of your own self as he is and be prepared to humble yourself before God. “I’ve never seen

Butt-gig´s dear old Dad was a professor at Notre Dame-and a card-carrying Marxist to boot. I think the apple doesn´t fall far from the tree here. Trump is calling the Dems the Party Of Abortion because he abhors the late term pregnancy bill. Trump respects human life-the Dems do NOT.

Next case.

Well for him Gay doesn´t count in religion and in particular in Politics. The Trump haters get uglier and uglier by the hour, and they somehow think that this is some sort of a key to their success. Go figure?

Same to you, Mr. Buttigieg. You are a practicing homosexual. As such, your actions deliberately, intentionally violate the teachings of the Bible. Therefore, you may have "faith" in something, but not in God.

I don´t even have to think twice to question your "faith", because I know that your "faith" is self-serving, one that says, "I´m good!" That, sir, is not faith, and it will not lead to eternal life with God.

Says the man from the party of live birth abortions or whatever they´re called? He´s just another self serving pol in it for the money and adulation (from Hollyweird I assume). Plus, being gay, he should tread lightly on questions of religion given so many follow teachings which don´t particularly condone his bent, pardon the pun.

I don´t see how you can believe in God and suck an unborn baby out of the womb of an expectant mother and then sell off the baby´s body parts. But it happens. And the libs never question the faith of anyone who is okay with such barbarism.

If we are going to use Pete Buttigeg´s logic, I don´t see how Obama can claim to believe in God or Allah or whatever. Talk about self-aggrandizement!

Pete can complain about policy all he wants but he would be wise to tread lightly on the whole God stuff.

A reality check for Peter Paul Montgomery Buttigieg:

Actions of someone who believes in God – Judge not: “Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?” (Matthew 7:3) God’s created order includes the creation of Adam and Eve, a man and a woman; the intimacy between men is detestable. (Leviticus 18:22) Further: Genesis19:5, Leviticus18:22,20:13, Deuteronomy22:5,23:18, Judges 9:22-23, Romans1:26-27, 1Corinthians6:9-10, 2Peter6-11, Jude6-8, Revelation21: 5-8,22:14-15.

Wealth and power – Not at odds with the teachings of Scripture if used for the benefit of others. The Trump family wealth has been used to provide employment and benefits (not unlike the wealth of the Carnegie, Ford, Frick, Morgan, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt); Trump family wealth has been shared through quiet philanthropy.

Downtrodden, immigrants, poor, prisoners – Issues candidate Trump intended to address and is doing so in spite of Democrats and their incessant obstruction to those efforts in addition to the virulent Democrat harassment to undermine his legitimate 2016 presidential election victory. A few of President Trump’s MAGA successes include stock market highs, improved labor statistics, increased house sales, increased manufacturing, a prison reform bill.

Isn´t that special Mr. D-bag Buttplug. You know what, Trump isn´t perfect, a sinner I submit. So am I so are you. A Christian knows that and accepts it and trusts the good Lord to know our true beliefs and Jesus died for our sins.

You dare speak of Trump´s sins putting yourself on the throne of the kingdom of heaven? What chapter and verse did I miss?

Of all the sins I´d least like to have to pray to be absolved it would be murder. But you just go ahead thinking you are the high and mighty, your´s is coming.

Don´t believe his actual intended target is Trump, but looking for a way to weaken the support of Trump from the Religious Right.

The Democrats need to figure out how to divide Trump´s base, and they will question everything.

Funny thing, nearly 50% of Catholics vote Democrat despite their "beliefs", and the Catholic Church almost pushes the Democrat Party to their congregations.

“The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” is in hot water over an outfit choice made by a guest performer. British musician Morrissey appeared on the NBC late-night talk show to perform—and he took the stage wearing a far-right pin on his lapel. The pin featured the logo of the anti-Islam For Britain political party. Morrissey, once the frontman of The Smiths, has openly supported the party since 2018. “I have been following a new party called For Britain which is led by Anne Marie Waters.

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines is worth $37billion (£28billion) and flies to 370 destinations on six continents with state-of-the-art aircraft. Truly, it’s a titan of aviation. But it started life as a crop-dusting outfit in 1924. And when it expanded to passenger transportation it used planes that could only hit 90mph, with the wind behind them. Delta has been on quite a journey, then—and these fascinating pictures illustrate the carrier’s dramatic transformation over the decades. They show some of its earliest passenger planes, a restored 1931 model with five passenger seats, a 1940 Douglas DC-3,

The marriages were short and not for love. But instead of a Las Vegas-style, alcohol-fueled ceremony, these marriages were criminal schemes. Authorities announced Monday that nearly 100 people have been indicted in a massive conspiracy in which immigrants paid as much as $70,000 to briefly marry a U.S. citizen and obtain a permanent resident card known as a “Green Card.” The indictment, returned by a grand jury in Texas late last month, accuses 96 people of taking part in the Houston-based criminal organization, which created sham marriages between legal U.S. residents and aliens, mostly from Vietnam, for years.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.

The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters

The political zealotry of the federal judge who ordered ten years’ worth of Donald Trump’s financial records be turned over to the House Oversight and Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings has been revealed with a highly unusual provision of his order. (snip) The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge’s ruling consists of the appeals process, with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta’s order forbids this

After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Here’s a revealing — and disturbing — new poll that bears on the current gang fight among leftists for the soul of the Democratic Party and its 2020 presidential nomination. See Also: ESPN chief: You’ll never guess what our viewers want to hear nothing about Almost half of Americans in a new Gallup Poll believe that socialism would be a good thing for the United States to have. Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote. Today, a bare majority (51 percent) says socialism would

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible
Democrats Embrace Socialism:Are We
Headed Towards 'Atlas Shrugged'?

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
